William Johnson Everett taught Christian social ethics for over thirty years in theological schools in the US, Germany, India, and South Africa, before turning to fiction, poetry, and other forms of creative writing. His many books and articles in ethics have been followed by an eco-centric work of historical fiction, Red Clay, Blood River (2008) and Turnings: Poems of Transformation, which appeared from Wipf and Stock in 2013. With the publication of Sawdust and Soul: A Conversation on Woodworking and Spirituality (Wipf and Stock, 2014) written with John De Gruchy, he is now working on a memoir about his grandfather's work at a copper mine on Cyprus in the 1920s. When not writing, he constructs furniture for worship settings. His online journal is at www.WilliamEverett.com and his gallery, shared with his wife Sylvia is at www.WisdomsTable.net. .
